We recommend fertilizing your lawn within the next several weeks following lawn aeration services to maximize your lawn’s health and growth potential.
Our team performs fertilization services for participants in our eight-step lawn care program in the weeks after our aeration services. Combine our aeration service and lawn care program and get the healthy, green lawn you’ve always wanted, worry-free.
Benefits of Aeration
Aerating your lawn provides many benefits that will leave your grass healthy and strong.
First and foremost, aerating your lawn helps grass breathe, as it exposes it to more oxygen and sunlight. Aeration allows grass roots to grow longer and stronger by making it easier for nutrients to access the soil.
Due to external factors like foot traffic, lawn soil becomes compacted over time, making the roots difficult for fertilizer to access. With aeration, this compaction loosens, allowing for better nutrient absorption.
Apart from promoting healthy growth, aeration can also prevent thatch. Thatch, made up of lawn debris such as dead roots and lawn clippings, gets trapped between the soil’s surface and the grass.
If this build-up becomes too thick, it soaks up moisture and does not allow the roots to thrive. Aeration breaks up thatch and lets the roots grow properly.
Finally, aeration can help prevent bugs and disease from killing grass. When roots cannot get necessary nutrients, they cannot withstand temperature changes and maintain long-term good health. This weakness can create a breeding ground for pests and leave the lawn susceptible to disease.
Don’t leave your lawn vulnerable to disease, thatch, and bugs.
